ZT comes up trumps for Bouygues!

28 August, 2014

Bouygues Energies & Services group have proved they put the safety of their employees first by consulting ZT Safety Systems ltd to provide a bespoke solution for the Street lighting group.

Bouygues had already provided their teams with quality FR and Arc clothing, however they still had an issue with the guys wearing normal webbing fall arrest or fall restraint harnesses over the specialist FR Work wear.

ZT Safety Systems ltd, design and manufacture the award winning ZT Safety Harness that has completely revolutionized the way a fall safety harness works. The ZT Safety Harness design removes the need for groin straps, and so eliminates the damage and trauma these can cause in the event of a fall. Its unique design also improves the day to day working experience and performance for the user wearing a harness. The harness has gone through unparalleled rigorous testing and development stages, resulting in a superior level of fall safety equipment that exceeds current legislation and will be welcomed by users as a much-needed improvement on the existing options.

Working with Bouygues current uniform coveralls, ZT fitted a complete FR harness solution inside the coverall, ensuring the user was completely protected. Senior Health and Safety Manager, Michael Twist says ‘ Our ultimate aim at Bouygues is to ensure each and every one of our employees are safe when working in hazardous conditions. The ZT Harness Solution has reduced the risk and ensured the users are comfortable whilst working at height’.

The bespoke FR solution is now being trialled by a global risk management company for the oil and gas industry.
